Next week all returning officers will get a complete list of military and overseas giving their constituency and overseas addresses. These lists are available to all candidates and thus they can put the absentees on mailing lists for their campaign information. Limit to campaign the military now is allowing newspapers printed on most bases to carry political advertising.
